How do Miniature American Shepherds differ from standard Aussies?

The Miniature American Shepherd derived from breeding down Australian Shepherds to get smaller dogs, they are just as awesome and trainable, and smart as the Standard Aussies, but are a great option for adopters who live in apartments or places where they have a weight restriction rule for dogs in the complex, or just for adopters who love the Australian Shepherd.
